Cliff Swallow

The Cliff Swallow is a little birdie that closely resembles its Barn Swallow cousin, except the Cliff Swallow has a white triangle on top of their head. This one is collecting mud for its nest and the wings-up pose is typical when they do this.   high-res

Cliff Swallows are mostly insect eaters.   high-res

This Cliff Swallow has a face full of mud which it is collecting to make a little ball which it will add to its nest. The nest looks much like it was made of little bricks.   high-res
